The decision was reserved on June 14 on the request of Hussain Nawaz.

ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Supreme Court (SC) will announce its reserved decision on leaked picture of Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif’s son Hussain Nawaz today (Tuesday).

A three-member bench headed by Justice Ejaz Afzal will also read its verdict on recording the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) session that was reserved on June 14 on the request of Hussain Nawaz.

It is to be mentioned here that Hussain Nawaz submitted a petition in SC against his leaked photo, stating the purpose of this act was to humiliate him. He also demanded to identify the person behind it and to form a commissionunder a retired judge for proper inquiry.

Earlier, JIT submitted a written reply, claiming that a probe was launched immediately while culprit was traced within 24 hour and his department was also informed about the mischief.

“The individual was immediately removed from his assigned duties and reverted to his parent department. The department has confirmed that an (internal) inquiry has been completed and appropriate disciplinary action taken against the (said) individual,” said the reply.
